Charges against WVU running back Wendell Smallwood were dropped today, according to Jason Miller, the public officer of the Delaware attorney general’s office.

Smallwood was accused of trying to intimidate a witness in a murder case involving Zakee Lloyd in Wilmington, Del.

After confirming the charges were dismissed, Miller issued a statement.

“The investigation and prosecution of this case has always been focused on securing the conviction of Zakee Lloyd for the murder of Manuel Oliveras on April 14, 2012. Today Zakee Lloyd pled guilty to that crime and will be sentenced by the Superior Court in November.
